Wilde’s forthcoming album is a concept album with each song being much like a diary entry, in which the listener is taken on a journey from addiction, bad behavior and toxic relationships to self-love and sobriety. “Daylight,” the album’s fourth single continues Wilde’s ongoing collaboration with producers Eljay and Kris Houston. Centered around a warm and vibey production that gently nods at old school soul, paired with thumping beats, “Daylight” is roomy enough for Wilde’s big soulful vocals –before showing her off that she can spit some bars, too. But at its core, the song tells the tale of a dysfunctional and unhealthy relationship fueled by reckless and debauched partying that morphs into a destructive, self-sabotaging Groundhog’s Day. i
Filmed and edited by Nathaniel, the recently released video for “Daylight” follows Wilde through a seemingly endless cycle of booze and drug fueled nights with a lover, filled with passionate love making, drag out, knock down fights and early morning, hung over come downs, full of regret and shame that only ends with Wilde walks away and breaks the cycle.
